The Health Risks and Consequences of Trafficking in Women and Adolescents: Findings from a European Study

General Material

Violence and deprivation associated with trafficking (i.e., physical violence, sexual violence, confinement, lack of access to health care) often have profound impacts on trafficked women's physical and psychological health. Drawing upon a two-year international study, this report explores health risks, health consequences, and barriers to services encountered by trafficked women. Additionally, Zimmerman discusses findings on trafficked women's access to health care, as well as service provider intervention efforts. The report ends with recommendations for policy makers and service providers to recognize, prevent, and effectively respond to trafficking and its health-related ramifications.
